Ice Cream Sundae Cookies

These ice cream sundae cookies have all of your favorite sundae toppings in a delicious cookie!

Ice Cream Sundae Cookies

I was recently planning a fun ice cream party for a few friends (more on that later this week) and I was planning to set up a make your own ice cream sandwich bar. I was dreaming up all kinds of combinations of cookies and ice cream, and I thought how fun it would be to have a cookie that included a bunch of ice cream toppings!

The base of the cookie is yellow cake mix, and to that you add some eggs and melted butter and mix it up until it’s combined well. Then the fun part – choose your mix ins. I added some maraschino cherries (yum!), mini chocolate chips, and a bunch of fun sprinkles.

I think the addition of the cherries was definitely my favorite.

These ice cream sundae cookies were so fun and my kids loved them! They are perfect for making ice cream sandwiches, or as an extra surprise in school lunches.

  1. Hi! Thank you for this cake batter recipe with bling! I am going to boast for a moment and brag about my cake batter cookie skills! People tell me my cookies (any of them) are insanely delicious, and that I should sell them. LoL I just really enjoy making them. I’m a crafty biatch, and I have this OCD thing with my cookies, so they have to be just “so”. A good friend of mine had a quinceañera for her daughter with around 100 guests. She asked me to make cookies, matching the color scheme, and the cupcake frostings our other friend was doing. So I set out to do a white chocolate pink velvet crinkle, but didn’t want to use cocoa. I searched and searched for while chocolate baking powder, so I could stick with my red velvet recipe. All I could find (and this was online as I live in a smaller dairy town in Central California), and they couldn’t promise me it would work like a cocoa baking powder, was this huge 10 or 20 pound white chocolate powdered “flavoring” from Ghirardelli. It was pricy and10 pounds @ 1/4 cup per batch? So I wrote my own recipe for the first time ever (this was my first event ever also) and holy pink velvet Batman! Ghirardelli White Chocolate Bar, only 1.5 squares, melted as directed and added to modified “velvet” cake batter cookies, or any cake batter cookie, makes a very yummy cookie! This Ice Cream Sunday cookie will taste exactly like a Sunday with whip even! I just add the melted white chocolate to the cake mix, eggs, and butter, then throw the mixer switch. One baking bar lasts through many batches. 1.5 squares is plenty. 1.25 if it’s a bit too much for your taste! LoL just had to ramble this at you in gratitude for all the yummy stuff I see here! TYTY
